This week, a video was posted online of a seemingly lost and disoriented man being swarmed by a group of young people, then sucker punched, robbed, and stripped naked of his clothing on a downtown Baltimore street. It's not clear where the video was first posted, but it made it to the now typical stops for such shock clips: Worldstarhiphop, LiveLeak, YouTube, Twitter.
What could have been just another tantalizing video turned into something else: outraged viewers say they have tracked down the identity of the man who threw the first punch, and police have connected a victim - who had reported an assault and theft to police but couldn't remember where it occurred - to the incident. Police say an investigation is moving forward.
He was NOT dancing with that girl!! She was brought over to him, he was just standing there!
I did not see that, look again. He was trying to get away from the two girls.
Well he certainly participated.
He may have just been trying to “fit in”
But he was foolish.
Cowboys and hoodies?
Dude was on the wrong side of the tracks, alone.
As I said that dont excuse the wilding.
I’m in Hinckley, armed and ready. :-)
The point is Homer should have known better.
There are places I don’t like in the cold light of day let alone at night half in the bag with no plan.
To #16:: I collect various crime stories and keep them in a database. Titles: Guns and Crime (including Home Invasions and Self Defense subtitles); Gun Control; Crime by Cities; Gangs; DOJ and Crime; Dealth Penalty cases/issues. etc.
Makes it easier to review them as a group over time and good sources for my columns.
Bro, we will survive.
What we have in america is not a problem of racial profiling but rather a problem of black overinvolvement in criminal behavior.
Are the pancakes still OK?
I’m not gonna ask where it carries it.
He may have just been trying to fit in
Stop it! - you are just like the MSM - with 'what YOU think' which is different than what ALL can see!
Not a big believer in AR-types and not real interested in 5.56. Seen them for the FAL and was interested (because I have a FAL), but am thinking that would be even more interesting on the Keltec RFB that I am saving for.
I would not have been there.
That’s my wider point.
What the freak does that have to do with YOU SAYING HE WAS DIRTY DANCING and TRYING TO FIT IN!!!???
Having a major problem keeping it honest? Wonder why that is.
The top two stories were a spiral staircase that took us to a small diameter platform from which we could exit the building through glass windows to stand on a narrow railed ledge. We'd moon our GFs who were watching from the street and spit at Public Square. Then we'd take the stairs all the way down to ground level bounding ten steps at a time.
Blacks didn't wear hoodies in those days. Lime green shoes with yellow slacks etc were more the fashion.
And be really smart.
And you NEED to MAKE STUFF UP/RUMORS to make your point??
You can be anywhere and this could happen - so don’t be so self righteous!!
